Product Description

There are many different ways to minister to God's orphan children and to the adoptive families that have welcomed these children home. This booklet from Focus on the Family makes it clear that struggling adoptive families need their church families to support them during times of trials. While the suggestions in this booklet may not apply to all situations, they represent a general "cry of the heart" of adoptive families who welcomed home an emotionally wounded or struggling child. The goal is to provide practical guidance for churches seeking effective ways to support adoptive families.

    I am an attachment and trauma board certified therapist working with families who have adopted a child with significant mental health problems. Sadly these families receive more criticism than support including from their church family. This booklet is truly the "voice" of adopted families and required reading for any church actively involved in adoption activities. I have notified both local families and churches about this resource and encouraged them to purchases copies.

    My only disappointment was the lack of focus on mental health services. Many of the families I see have suffered for years because they felt they should be able to solve the child's problems on their own, were discouraged by their church to seek out mental health services and/or were involved in inappropriate therapy. It is my prayer that the church encourage and support mental health services especially for adopted children and their families. I have helped many families start on the right track to prevent future problems and empower new parents with needed tools as well as kept families together on the verge of dissolution. It would be great if a booklet was available on how mental health services and the christian faith can be a collaboration of addressing the needs of the christian family, especially adopted families.

    Received this recently at a seminar. It is great for sharing the needs of adoptive families with their church families and friends. It is comforting to know that others understand our needs.

    Prayer is a great weapon of a very real war and is much appreciated by our children, even when they are purposefully choosing a path different from God's. This booklet explains simply how to pray for adoptive families.

    I am buying more.

    Wrapping Around Adoptive Families is just what we needed. We received 12 copies of the booklet to present to our church elders and pastors in order that they may be better prepared to help families like ours. It said just what we needed to be said for ourselves and future adoptive families in our congregation. Thank you for your speedy mailing of this order to us.
